Tempted By Eternity

A crack of doom in the Streets of Dawn  

All in the small town rain out of poetry ash  

There is breathing in the darkness of the street lights 

longing for the romance of the alley in the blue hotel sun   

carrying their black wood to an end of self illusion

The crack develops to rumbling fate  

Sparks of light fall through the dawning 

as the dew shines golden  

shimmering like a sea of diamonds


The child turns around 

Struck down by moonshine 

The eye opens the ear opens

and the integrity of all worlds

becomes part of the living 

Now the child has its name 

tempted by eternity


and left with 

The Moonshine Brand
